It measures how the socio-ecological transition influences change in output, inputs and productivity in terms of quantity, price and quality. It examines distributional effects of energy use and ICT on employment and productivity dynamics. Moreover, it introduces the socio-ecological transition into the general equilibrium framework to establish how it impacts on growth.
